Years ago, I remember Vacation Bible School and the song, "Oh Let the Sunshine in . . ."
It was sunshine to my heart when I read in the March 21 issue of the Olive Hill Times that the local TV access may return in Olive Hill. However, this issue of re-starting the cable access channel has been in the news before. I sincerely commend the Olive Hill Chamber of Commerce for their re-newed interest in this worthwhile community project.
In the article, it explained the way the cable access board came into existence. The purpose of the Federal Suit that I filed in 2002 was because the City of Olive Hill blocked the airing of a program where City officials were raising gas rates without much notice to the public. Federal Judge Hood ruled properly because I felt that the community access (as well as any news outlet) should be free from the control of City Hall and let the people know what's going on and how taxpayer's money is being spent.
Because many years have passed, it would be proper (and probably legal) if all people who are on the board be reappointed (as per guidelines) or new people appointed to complete the board. The Independent Cable Access board is just
as it is named. It must be independent and serve to inform and enhance our community. I look forward to regular programming and airing of important governmental meetings.
"Oh Let the Sunshine in. . . "

Against liquor sales in Olive Hill
Along the roadways of our little town, we see signs urging us to vote YES for legal liquor sales in Olive Hill. Sadly, we see no signs urging us to vote NO!
In appreciation of Pastor Barrell
Some members of the Lower Grassy Church of Christ, in my opinion, should hang their heads in shame. On February 23, 2014 a wonderful man of God and their Pastor Larry Barrell was dismissed from preaching.
